1st time trail

I bought a Jeep Wrangler last year, and my family and I want to hit a trail or two this Spring/Summer but we don't want something to major for the 1st time out.

Can someone on here please let me know of a good easy trail to take our Jeep on for the 1st time near the Mocksville/Winston Salem area of North Carolina?

Thanks in advance

DM

Uwharrie National Forrest is going to be the closest place with some decent trails. There are plenty of easy trails there a stock Jeep is capable of doing.

X2 on URE. We always set up camp in Arrowhead - water, electricity, bath house -then drive out on the trails. Nice.

Awesome thanks!!!!

I think we are going to try to go camping at the Arrowhead camp ground a weekend in May (Memorial Day Weekend) with the kids.

Can anyone tell me about the camping sites there as well? Is it close enough where the kids could swim in the lake?

The only think I know about it is its close to trails, the spot are pretty good spots.

Thanks,
DM

Arrow head has hook ups and a bath house. Its more like a traditional camp site I don't remember how much it costs though. Its not that far of drive to the beach to go swimming from their. Badin camp site has primitive sites and few of them are a long the lake front. Of course you can always camp for free a long any of the trails. Unless it says no camping allowed you can make camp. Also if you turn down the road for the Daniel trail head their are places to hang out by the river. The water is usually shallow enough small kids can hang out and soak in the water with no issues. The current isn't bad at all of course weather dictates this. You can also pan for gold to if you want that's always fun. If you're going hiking their are plenty of trials as well and usually people riding horse. Their usually real friendly and even offer my kids a ride a few times we've bumped into them. Just pick up a map and trail permits at the outpost and have fun.

The lake is 200 yards from Arrowhead. The sites are $15 a day, but you can put three tents on one. Memorial Day is crowded. Better reserve slip now. Can do so online.
